Night Circus

I just finished listening to Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. The audio book was performed by the incomparable Jim Dale, which was treat in and of itself!

NPR did a nice story on Night Circus and author Erin Morgenstern that you might be interested in titled "Night Circus" Comes to Town with Magic, Mystery.

Summary from Amazon (best book of September):

Jim Dale
Erin Morgenstern’s dark, enchanting debut takes us to the black and white tents of Le Cirque des Reves, a circus that arrives without warning, simply appearing when yesterday it was not there. Young Celia and Marco have been cast into a rivalry at The Night Circus, one arranged long ago by powers they do not fully understand. Over time, their lives become more intricately enmeshed in a dance of love, joy, deceit, heartbreak, and magic. Author Morgenstern knows her world inside and out, and she guides the reader with a confident hand. The setting and tone are never less than mesmerizing. The characters are well-realized and memorable. But it is the Night Circus itself that might be the most memorable of all.
